How to file a complaint against the owner of Belman Vandrarhem in Stockholm?  (3 Answers)

I have recently booked a hotel room on Sunday, 12.08.2012 through , to stay with Belman Vandrarhem for two days in Stockholm, check-in date being 17.08.2012. The confirmation clearly stated that I can refund 48 hours before my arrival. I emailed someone in Belman to ask about the reception hours and he replied me almost immediately.

Something came up and I need to delay my trip to Sweden. I tried to cancel this booking by sending them an e-mail on Monday, 13.08.2012. I received no replies. I sent a twitter message to Hostelbookers to ask if this is the right approach to cancel your bookings, and no replies. Sent another two or three, still no replies. In an act of desperation, I rang Stockholm from London on Tuesday, 14.08.2012, only to find out the guy who answered the phone was very bad in English and a really slow person who speaks in a voice that you almost can't hear. If you wanna know what I'm referring to, it's like talking to Consuela from Family guy.

I'm running out of time to cancel the booking because the deadline is on the 15.08.12 which is today. I asked my friend who is Swedish to ring the hostel and speak to him in Swedish to cancel the booking. My friend came back to me saying that the guy was being really slow and he said he was checking if he could cancel it.

The next morning at 10am (London time), 15.08.12, I rang the hostel again from London. I spoke to the same guy, with his same slow English and slow Consuela voice, spent 6 minutes trying to give him a simple series of number like 54545---only to have him saying that I am late and that the deadline was midnight 00:00!!!!!!!

Of course I wasn't happy and I told him we have rang twice and I have sent an e-mail to cancel blablabla. He gave me an attitude and hang up on me saying he's too busy.

The thing is this hostel i.e. Belman Vandrarhem is a small hostel in a very shady area of Stockholm. I'm wondering if there is anything I could do to get my money back from him. I have all the evidences of the previous communications and even the time. The only thing I'm missing is the name of the employee. However, my Swedish friend assured me that he is not the employee, but the owner of this annoying Consuela hostel.

Can anyone advise me how to go about this? E-mails is out of the questions and so are phones (he starts rejecting my calls) and he totally ignores my e-mail. I have spammed him about 6-7 times expressing my dissapointment because I had to pay for his incompetencies.

I am thinking of going there when I'm in Stockholm next week and talk to him directly. Do you think this can be dangerous since I'm a small Asian female and my Swedish friend (male) told me this area of Stockholm is shady? Also, if he is the owner of that annoying hostel then how can you file a complaint against a manager?

Thank you so much in advance.

24 Hours Travelcard  (5 Answers)

Hello,

Can someone tell me if a one day 24 hours travelcard is suitable for the following routes:
- 358 bus (Arlanda airport to Marsta Station)
- Commuter train 36 (Marsta Station to Stockholm Central)
- Red Line 14 to Gamla Stan.

Does anyone know where I can find a good map of the transportation network of Stockholm? I'm having trouble understanding it. I heard there are extra fees for some transportations to the airport. I can't quite understand what transportations are included in the travelcard.

Thanks!
João

Travel to Stockholm Archipelago  (3 Answers)

I would like to spend a half-day (about 6 hours) visiting one or two islands in the Stockholm archipelago, but the assortment of boat and excursion options is confusing. Ideally, I’d like to visit an island, walk around a bit, get back on a boat, visit another island and then return to Stockholm. Any experiences you have with traveling in the archipelago (which islands to visit, which boat to take, should I take a train to Vaxholm and then pick up a boat) would be appreciated.

Lunches in local Stockholm Markets  (2 Answers)

Dear all,

I've visited Stockholm half year ago, and remember having a superb lunch at one of the local markets in Stockholm. I'm not sure whether it's HAY MARKET or not. I'll bring my famliy to revisit Stockholm and wish to go there again.

I understand that Hay Market is an open market, but where I had lunch is indoors, and it's located right at the backdrop of an open market like Hay, and there's an escalator that brings you down to this basement market heaven that offers both food products and eateries.

Did my memory fail me? Is that Hay Market? If not, where can I have lunch in a local food market?

Thanks,
Sabrina.

Stockholm Bostad question  (8 Answers)

Hello! I have a question about some information that is given in the StockholmsBostäder website.
I am currently trying to get a firsthand's contract in stockholm...well it is difficult since I'm in the queue since february - though I'm looking for an apartment in the area söder om söder (Farsta, Högdalen, Älvsjö etc).
I found one apartment in the area I want that is advertised since yesterday and there are only 4 people that have applied for it (i'm the second in the queue). I'm really wondering why there are so few people because I've checked many apartments at the same area and by the time they are online they get at least 30 people applying during the first day!
But I then saw a difference. It sais:
Fastighetsägare: Privat
whereas all the others are "Kommunalt".
Could someone please tell me whether there are any drawbacks with "Privat" fastighetsägare? And the differences (for and against Privat and Kommunalt)?
